Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

According to EPI (Estimation Programs Interface) Suite by means of BIOWIN Linear and Nonlinear method it is indicated that tert-butyl-4-methoxyphenol is a readily biodegradable substance and degrades fast. Also it was estimated that the half of tert-butyl-4-methoxyphenol is 900 hous (37.5 days) which is less than the EPI criteria for persistence (les than 60 days). Therefore it can be estimated that tert-butyl-4-methoxyphenol is not persistent in water medium.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable
